  • Best Practices for Dow 316 Silicone Release Spray

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Molykote 316 Silicone Release Spray should be applied to clean surfaces. Clean off any surface residue with a fine emery cloth or scouring powder until the surface is shiny

      then wipe with a clean cloth moistened with solvent to remove dirt and abrasive particles.

    2. Application

      Methods of application vary, depending upon the size, accessibility, and complexity of the unit to be processed or packaged. Usually, Molykote 316 Silicone Release Spray is sprayed in a light film.

      Molykote 316 Silicone Release Spray can also be buffed onto metal surfaces with a hand buffer. Only a thin film is needed for effective release. This film should be restored as required.

    3. Curing

      Approximately three minutes drying time should be allowed.
